Alumni Relations

Dear Alumnus,

The Alumni Relations Team had an exciting and busy 2015 - having interacted with many graduates throughout South Africa and internationally at a range of events (including Student Chapter meetings, the Durban Alumni Association AGM and gatherings, the April 2015 graduation ceremonies, the Convocation AGM, the Cape Town Alumnus dinner,  the film screening/movie evening held at the Pavillion in Westville, lunches in Pietermaritzburg, Scottburgh on the South Coast of KwaZulu-Natal as well as in Gauteng, functions in Perth and Sydney (Australia), a similar event in Auckland (New Zealand) and a UK event ) as well as via personal visits and email, written and telephonic communication.  A number of photographs taken at these events are available for viewing on the website.

The proposed 2016 Programme of Activity promises to be even more fun and varied and we aim to have events in Cape Town, Richards Bay, Durban (a formal dinner, another film screening/movie evening and a supper theatre event), Swaziland, Mpumalanga, Zimbabwe, Pietermaritzburg and internationally we are planning to visit America (West Coast) and the United Kingdom.

Communication via the website, Facebook, Twitter and SMS has increased and is an effective way of informing graduates of UKZN events and issues. In order to invite alumni to the planned events and to keep everyone updated on University events – we are eager to secure the current contact details of alumni – especially email addresses and mobile phone numbers. Also, please encourage any friends or relatives who are graduates and have not received any correspondence from the University in recent months to provide us with their updated contact details. This can be done via the website

With our very best wishes,
The Alumni Relations Team.
